Gluten free apple fruit bread. 🍏

β€’10 Replies

Hi everyone,

I haven't been shopping in the supermarkets since March so to make up for the lack of choices I've been buying dried apples and pears as I eat lots of dried fruit and love sultans and raisins anyway. I'm finding that dried apples and pears are a great store cupboard must have.

I baked this yesterday and really like fruit bread with strong cheddar cheese or home made jam. 😊

Here's the recipe:

350g gluten free brown bread flour I used Doves farm.

300ml lukewarm water with a teaspoon of brown sugar and 2 heaped teaspoons of dried yeast left to wake up and go frothy on top.

1 desert spoon brown sugar

1 tea spoon nutmeg

1 tea spoon cinnamon

1 Table spoon of olive oil,

1 tea spoon salt

3 large free range eggs

125g dried raisins

100g dried apple diced

Mix thoroughly in a food processor spread mix into a large loaf tin with some slices of dried apple on top with a little maple syrup to give a nice glaze, leave to prove 35 mins and bake for 35mins 180C.

Fruit bread is a great alternative to cakes and cookies as its filling without needing lots of sugar and I love fruit bread and was very pleased with how this turned out.

I love when men get their hands dirty in the kitchen, cook and bake, cool Jerry! You have qualified as a houseman πŸ‘ŒπŸ˜πŸ₯—πŸ§‘β€πŸ³πŸ₯˜My youngest son loves to cook and bake, and cleans the house plus looking after his 2 boys! Well gardening is a little difficult now in his garden but in late Spring he starts growing all sorts from Herbs to Peas and Salad πŸ₯—

Thank you my gran taught me to cook when I was little and I was a single working dad so learnt to literally pull my sleeves up in many ways. Good for your son and that sounds great to me growing a few things.

Enjoy your day now. πŸ‘πŸ˜Š

Yes Grandmas are good teachers Jerry! And a single dad? That must have been a tough time for you to juggle everything! I am glad I wasn't a single Mum with 4 children here! I would have moved back to Germany then with the help of my Mum and Dad! Life at times πŸ‘Œ

What a fabulous recipe Jerry and your fruit loaf looks amazing. I've not seen dried pears in the shops so I'll have to have a look, if they agree with me then that'll be another fruit I can eat.

Guess who's coming to your house for afternoon tea tomorrow - I wish πŸ˜‰

Enjoy the rest of your day.
